Friday nights at 8.15 pm

at The Royal British Legion, Blandford Forum, DT11 7AD

(unless otherwise stated)

The Legion opens at 7pm - club doors open by 7.45pm (subject to sound checks)

Wessex Acoustic welcomes guests as well as members, but please note you all need to sign in as visitors to the Legion on the special Folk Club list which will be at the entrance to the function room. To facilitate the membership/guest licence arrangements, and ensure we have enough seats, it would  be a big help if you  book your tickets ahead,  but you can also just turn up on the night without pre-booking, assuming we are not sold out.

Our next club night is.....

Oct 6th             Steve Tilston   Support  Anne-Louise Richards 


Celebrating 40 years as a professional musician! Ask anyone on the English acoustic scene who their favourite guitarist, singer, songwriter and entertainer is and nine times out of ten the same name will crop up in the top three of every department. Steve Tilston is one of our most celebrated song-smiths. Widely recognised within the world of folk and contemporary music, the words, arrangements and subtle, quite superb guitar playing could be no one else.

The writer of the classic songs The Slipjigs and Reels, Here’s to Tom Paine and The Naked Highwayman, has turned author. Steve has recently published his first novel – full of colourful characters All for Poor Jack is an historical tale set in Bristol and the “New World”. “The longest song I’ve ever written!” says Steve.

Support was going to be Rod Jenkins but he has now got an upcoming operation which will prevent him playing his guitar for a while. As his replacement, we are delighted to welcome back Anne-Louise Richards who wowed the audience in June opening for Jess and Richard Arrowsmith.
